Future Connections

The museum has partnered with University Circle Incorporated for over 15 years in this exciting summer program. Exceptional teens from the Cleveland area are chosen for the eight week program that emphasizes life skills and career choices. Students that are selected to work at the museum are mentored by museum staff. As part of their museum experience, students assist in children's classes, create a research project which includes a public tour, and participate in lectures and art studios. After four weeks with a UCI cultural institution, students are assigned to a business internship for the remainder of the session. Students receive a stipend for their participation. 

For more information and a list of participating school districts and cultural institutions, please visit UCI's website.
